Bug Description

When using some java applications, like Oracle SQL developer, I get a GPU hang.. for some seconds the screen becomes black and unresponsive then it comes back to life.

This issue was not present in Oneiric so it seems a regression.

The laptop is a Dell L702X with an integrated Intel GPU..
this is the lcpci:

00:02.0 VGA compatible controller: Intel Corporation 2nd Generation Core Processor Family Integrated Graphics Controller (rev 09) (prog-if 00 [VGA controller])
 Subsystem: Dell Device 0571
 Control: I/O+ Mem+ BusMaster+ SpecCycle- MemWINV- VGASnoop- ParErr- Stepping- SERR- FastB2B- DisINTx+
 Status: Cap+ 66MHz- UDF- FastB2B+ ParErr- DEVSEL=fast >TAbort- <TAbort- <MAbort- >SERR- <PERR- INTx-
 Latency: 0
 Interrupt: pin A routed to IRQ 52
 Region 0: Memory at f2400000 (64-bit, non-prefetchable) [size=4M]
 Region 2: Memory at e0000000 (64-bit, prefetchable) [size=256M]

 Expansion ROM at <unassigned> [disabled]
 Capabilities: <access denied>
 Kernel driver in use: i915
 Kernel modules: i915

and this is the error found in dmesg after the hangup:

[ 4889.687609] [drm:i915_hangcheck_elapsed] *ERROR* Hangcheck timer elapsed... GPU hung

For GPU lockup bugs with Intel graphics, you need to collect the output of 'dmesg' and your /sys/kernel/debug/dri/0/i915_error_state file. Both of these must be collected while the machine is locked up (e.g. by sshing into the sick machine over ethernet). See https://wiki.ubuntu.com/X/Troubleshooting/Freeze for additional info.

reinstalled precise from scratch and issue is present... I've posted i915 logs and dmesg and confirmed the bug report.
